Karl Stefanovic may be 46 years old, but he still has the mind of a teenage boy.

The Today host couldn’t stop laughing on Tuesday morning while reporting on Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ plans to fly into space next month on a rocket built by his company Blue Origin.

He lost his composure after noticing the cutting-edge spaceship looked like a giant penis, something his co-anchor Ally Langdon, 42, found equally amusing.

It wasn’t a brief fit of giggles either; Karl and Ally actually laughed throughout the entire three-minute segment.

Stifling chuckles, Ally began the report: ‘Rockets everywhere this morning.

‘Outdoing his fellow billionaires in the race to space, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos will blast into orbit next month.’

Grow up! It wasn’t a brief fit of giggles either; Karl and Ally actually laughed throughout the entire three-minute segment

‘You know what they call that?’ a stunned Karl asked. ‘They call it Blue Origin.’

He added: ‘Does that look a little odd to you, or is that just me?’

As the co-hosts struggled to suppress their laughter, Today newsreader Alex Cullen actually had tears in his eyes.

Ally then snapped at the boys to ‘grow up’ – even though she was chortling too.

Over in Nine’s Los Angeles bureau, U.S. correspondent Alison Piotrowski also struggled to contain her laughter as she explained how Bezos – the world’s richest man – hopes the Blue Origin flight will kickstart Amazon’s plans for space tourism.

Bezos, 57, announced plans on Monday to fly into space next month on a rocket built by his company Blue Origin, fulfilling what he said was a lifelong dream.

The billionaire said he and his brother Mark will blast off from Earth on July 20 on the first crewed flight of the company’s New Shepard launch vehicle.

Blue Origin is auctioning off the third seat in the spacecraft and bidding is already at $3.2million with thousands of participants from around the world.

World’s richest man: Bezos, 57, announced plans on Monday to fly into space next month on a rocket built by his company Blue Origin, fulfilling what he said was a lifelong dream 

The trip will last a total of 10 minutes, four of which passengers will spend above the Karman line that marks the recognized boundary between Earth’s atmosphere and space.

After lift-off, the capsule separates from its booster, then spends four minutes at an altitude exceeding 60 miles (100 kilometers), during which time those on board experience weightlessness and can observe the curvature of Earth from space.

The booster lands autonomously on a pad two miles from the launch site, and the capsule floats back to the surface with three large parachutes that slow it down to about a mile per hour when it lands.

Test runs: Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket has successfully carried out more than a dozen uncrewed test runs launching from its facility in the Guadalupe Mountains of West Texas

New Shepard has successfully carried out more than a dozen uncrewed test runs from its facility in the Guadalupe Mountains of west Texas.

The reusable suborbital rocket system was named after Alan Shepard, the first American in space 60 years ago.

The proceeds from the auction will go to Blue Origin’s foundation, Club for the Future, which aims to inspire future generations to pursue careers in STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

After the auction for the first flight, Blue Origin will offer places for sale for future trips.
